Got to the Shrewsbury for the start of the incoming at 8 AM and had to find an alternate spot to crab as my usual spots were all taken already. There were 6 other boats out working traps before I got there. Weather was a little chilly but not too bad. The water temp was 53 when I started and as the tide started coming in it dropped to 51. The water was crystal clear too, I could see bottom clearly in 6 or 7 feet. Had a little bit of a slow start but wound up with 8 or 9 keepers on the first run with a couple of 6.5 inchers. Action was spotty during most of the day, with a surprising amount of small crabs and females still around. Wound up with just under a bushel before wrapping it up around 12:30. Was a noticeable drop from the last few trips where I could get a bushel plus in 2.5 - 3 hours. Not sure how much longer the bite will be going on as the temps are supposed to really drop the next couple of days. Would be nice to get one more trip in.

Thanks for the report, enjoy them... They will go in and out of the mud for a week or so, the next few days will be very cold, then it warms up again.. I'm planning a season finale on the 18th or 19th..

You are correct as usual riverpop. Some crabs from yesterday already had muddy lungs. It won't be long before they are in the mud hibernating.
